Ethics and Faith in Practice

On Tuesday 27th October about 35 people braved the cold and wet to hear Ian Harris speak in the final talk of this well attended series. Ian is a journalist and author, his new book “New World  New God” was available for purchase at the talk.

Ian led us through four views of how humans relate and have related to the natural world - from the Biblical view of having dominion over creation, through the medieval age of being “in the pits” and the need to escape from that world, onto the modern economic world of exploiting resources regardless of the consequences, to the fourth view that requires a paradigm shift - a world where we relate positively to the Earth - we belong to the Earth - we are all connected.  

We’ve been enhancing ourselves, not the Earth. As Christians we need to consider stewardship (a change of theology and doctrine) and value “who we are over what we have”.

Ian left us with a question to ponder:
“How should we humans live upon the earth so that our presence enhances not just ourselves, but the planet?”
